Destination Wedding Trends: What’s Hot and What’s Not

If you’re dreaming of a picturesque wedding against the backdrop of sun-kissed beaches and swaying palms, Goa is undoubtedly one of the top destinations on your radar. And at Resort Rio, we understand the allure of a Goan wedding like no other. From intimate ceremonies to lavish celebrations, we’ve seen it all. So, let’s dive into the hottest destination wedding trends in Goa, along with a few pointers on what to embrace and what to avoid.


  1. Opt for Unique Wedding Venues:

Gone are the times when a wedding was just in a classic banquet hall. Brides and grooms previously used to stick to traditional venues, however now days unconventional is the new thing and North Goa is full of unconventional venue choices. Whether it is being a beachfront or a garden setting, do think of something out-of-the-box and that would make this occasion special for you as well as for everyone present.

  1. Embrace Personalisation:

Make the wedding unique to you by imbuing your own personal style and taste into every detail of the occasion. Whether it is creating an environment that will reflect your love story through the decoration or delicately crafting a menu that will highlight your favourite foods, personalisation is very important to make this day special.

  1. Go Green:

Sustainability is not a fad, it’s our life-style. For example, try to add eco-friendly accents to your wedding decoration, for instance, biodegradable petals, potted plants to be used as centrepieces, reusable signage etc. Not only it decks up your occasion with some greens, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of the celebrations.

  1. Explore Goa Wedding Packages:

Take the stress out of wedding planning by opting for a comprehensive wedding package. At Resort Rio, our Goa wedding packages are designed to cater to your every need, from accommodation for your guests to exquisite dining experiences and expert event planning services. Let us handle the details while you focus on creating memories.



  1. Overlooking Logistics:

A Goa wedding though very romantic, it is crucial to evaluate the logistics, especially, if you are getting guests in from different cities. Let the guests know the exact physical location of the venue and set up the transportation in advance, so that you can communicate other important details in time to avoid the last-minute confusing questions.

  1. Ignoring the Weather:

Although Goa has fantastic weather for the most part of the year, it is worth bearing in mind that there are seasonal variations, which need to be factored in when you are deciding on the date of your wedding. It’s always better to opt for a cooler and drier date.

  1. Overcrowded Marriage Halls:

While marriage halls in Goa have their charm, overcrowded venues can detract from the intimate ambiance you’re aiming for. Instead, consider smaller, more exclusive wedding venues in North Goa that offer privacy and personalised service, such as our boutique resort in North Goa.

  1. Neglecting Cultural Sensitivities:

Goa is a blend of cultures, therefore it is of utmost importance to respect local customs and traditions while planning wedding. Whether it is sourcing tradition elements from Goa for your wedding ceremony or being careful with the local sensitivities, a little cultural appreciation definitely makes a difference in the end.

To conclude, Goa is the perfect venue for a destination wedding for someone who is looking for a magical experience. Don’t just follow the latest trends, instead, personalise them and pay attention to the little details, and you will surely make memories that will last forever. And Resort Rio will become your sidekick on this adventure, and this means your dream wedding in Goa is just around the corner.
